    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:5

    Y dijeron los apstoles al Seor: Aumntanos la fe.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 17:5

    Verse 5. Increase our
    faith.] This work of pardoning every offense of every man, and that continually, seemed so difficult, even to the disciples themselves, that they saw, without an extraordinary degree of faith, they should never be able to keep this command. But some think that this and what follows relate to what Matthew has mentioned. Matt. xvii. 19, 20.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. And the
    apostles said unto the Lord , etc.] Either on account of what was now said by Christ concerning offences, and forgiving injuries; being conscious to themselves of their own weakness to withstand temptations; and fearful lest they should be stumbled and offended with what they should meet with; or that they should give offence to others: and being also sensible of what spirits they were of, and of the difficulties of conquering them, and mastering the resentment of their minds, when injured and provoked; and also the necessity of divine assistance, of having fresh supplies of grace, and of having their graces, and particularly faith, strengthened, and drawn into a lively exercise; or on account of their not being able to cast out a devil from one that was possessed, ( Matthew 17:19,20) when words, to the same purpose, were spoken by Christ, as in the following verse; on occasion of one or other of these, though more likely the former, the apostles addressed Christ in this manner, increase our faith ; both the faith of working miracles, and the grace of believing in him: by which, as they express their sense of the weakness, and imperfection of their faith; and their great desire to have it increased, which might be for their comfort, and his glory; so they acknowledge his divine power, and that he is the author and finisher of faith; and that as the beginning, so the increase of it is from him: wherefore faith is not of a man's self, or the produce of man's freewill and power, but is the gift of God; and even where it is, it is not in man to increase it, or add to it, or to draw it forth into exercise; this also is the operation of God. And if the apostles had need to put up such a petition to Christ, much more reason have other men.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 - It is no abatement of their guilt by whom an
    offence comes, nor will i lessen their punishment that offences will come. Faith in God' pardoning mercy, will enable us to get over the greatest difficultie in the way of forgiving our brethren. As with God nothing is impossible, so all things are possible to him that can believe. Ou Lord showed his disciples their need of deep humility. The Lord ha such a property in every creature, as no man can have in another; he cannot be in debt to them for their services, nor do they deserve an return from him.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    17:5 {Increase} (prosqes). Second aorist
    active imperative of prostiqemi, to add to. Bruce thinks that this sounds much like the stereotyped petition in church prayers. A little reflection will show that they should answer the prayer themselves.
